Slow roasted beef round eye roast

For all that want a Prime Rib meal, but don't want to pay the price, this is the meal for you!
1 Eye of Round Roast (2 &1/2 - 5 lbs)
2 Tbls Kosher salt (Just rub salt all over roast)
1. Rub roast all over with kosher salt.
2. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap.
3. Place in fridge for 24-48 hours.
4. Get roast out of fridge 1 hour prior to cooking.
5. Finely mince 1 sprig rosemary & 6 sprigs thyme. Make a paste with 1 head roasted garlic, salt, pepper, olive oil, and herbs.
6. Heat a cast iron skillet on high until smoking hot.
7. Place roast, fat side down, in skillet. Brown each side, about 3 minutes, turning after each side is browned.
8. When cool enough to touch, rub herb paste all over roast, making sure  paste sticks to meat.
9. Place in a 225 degree (F) oven for 1& 1/4 hours.
10. Check meat temp w/a meat thermometer. If temp is 115 degrees, turn oven off. Close door and leave meat in oven.
11. Check meat temp after 30 minutes. When temp reaches 125 degrees (center of meat, thermometer inserted into center of meat, from an end), remove from oven to a cutting board. Cover w/ foil. Let rest 10  minutes.
12. After resting, slice meat on a slight diagonal cut.        13.Meat should be pink & moist.


  1. Charyl, do you think this could be done in a crockpot as opposed to the oven? It looks delicious!

  2. No. Here's why. In a crock pot, you have no control over the temp, so your roast will simply slow cook, and will be tender, but it will not be pink in the middle.

  3. I showed this to H tonight and I'm sure it'll appear on our menu in the next week.

  4. This really is delicious. Please do not skip the salting step. That's what makes this meat exceptional. I tried this recipe because Albertson's had Eye of Round on sale for BOGO. I'd never made it before, was sure glad that I tried it.
